To analyze if the relational psychological contract has an impact on tacit knowledge transference inside the organization throughout the mediation of sharing intention this intangible asset.


A quantitative, correlational, non-experimental cross research was carried out and a non-probabilistic sample was used in the gathering of 346 questionnaires of middle-level collaborators into auto parts industry in Ciudad Juarez Chihuahua, Mexico. Data analysis was carried out by structural equations modeling using Partial Least Square (PLS).


Findings confirm that the relational psychological contract positively influences both: the intention to share tacit knowledge, as well as the transfer of tacit knowledge within organization and the influence that receives the intention to share sad knowledge.


Findings obtained are only and exclusively evidence from auto parts industry in this city, which can be different from other populations because of cultural context and productive sector.


There are strong implications between studied variables and this productive sector, since organizations recognize the importance and meaning of tacit knowledge of their employees and maintain good interpersonal relationships and motivational incentives among them is important for this intangible asset to be shared.
